Brendan Rodgers and Jose Mourinho have point to prove in Capital One Cup

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was proud of his side's performance against Bolton in the FA Cup but had a few words to say about the referee's decisions during the match.

The Capital One Cup is usually regarded as a mild inconvenience by the bigger clubs, an irritation that ranks somewhere between defrosting the freezer and paying a large electricity bill. You'd rather not, but it's necessary and people will get cross if you don't bother.

It's comfortably the fourth priority for any English club involved in European competition, unless you're Mike Ashley and you regard the Europa League as even lower.

Of course, teams tend to get a little more serious about the whole...

Jose Mourinho had 'not a word' for Chelsea players after loss to Bradford

Jose Mourinho wants Chelsea's FA Cup exit to Bradford to spark a positive reaction in the second leg of their Capital One Cup semifinal with Liverpool on Tuesday.


Jose Mourinho was so disappointed in his Chelsea players' defeat to League One Bradford that he dished out the silent treatment.

Mourinho was "ashamed" after watching the Blues go from 2-0 up to lose 4-2 and exit the FA Cup in an "unacceptable" performance which he described as a "disgrace."

Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas: Thierry Henry assist record 'not an obsession'

ESPN FC's Craig Burley responds to Jose Mourinho's comments following their loss to Bradford City in the FA Cup, where he blames the squad rotation.
Chelsea and Ivory Coast striker Didier Drogba received the Football Writers' Association's Tribute award at a gala dinner In London on Sunday.

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has told the Daily Telegraph he values assists as much as a striker values goals but says he is not obsessed with breaking former Arsenal teammate Thierry Henry's record.

Henry holds the Premier League record for assists with 20 in the 2002-03 season, but Fabregas appears on course to surpass the Frenchman, having already set up 15 in the league this season.

"Of course, I would like to beat Thierry's record, but it's not an obsession," Fabregas said. "Sometimes you...

Wolfsburg deny Andre Schurrle interest, Borussia Dortmund linked

ESPN FC's Craig Burley responds to Jose Mourinho's comments following their loss to Bradford City in the FA Cup, where he blames the squad rotation.

Wolfsburg have firmly denied reports linking them with a January move for Chelsea forward Andre Schurrle amid suggestions Borussia Dortmund could move for the Germany international in the summer.

Jose Mourinho said on Friday that Chelsea could be persuaded to cash in on Schurrle, 24, if they received "a phenomenal offer," and Wolfsburg -- who signed Kevin De Bruyne from the Blues a year ago -- were reported to be leading the race for his services.

Bild had reported on Monday that Schurrle's agent,...

Lucas Leiva reveals Steven Gerrard text motivation for Chelsea clash

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Craig Burley preview Tuesday's Capital One Cup replay between Chelsea and Liverpool.

Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva will be spurred on by a promise from captain Steven Gerrard when the club meet Chelsea in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night.

Lucas ruptured a cruciate ligament in the 2-0 quarterfinal win at Stamford Bridge in the competition back in November 2011 and subsequently missed the chance to appear in the 2012 final as Kenny Dalglish's men beat Cardiff City to claim the trophy.

The Brazilian may have missed the showpiece event, but was given a winner's medal at...
